  • I heard the heartbeat at 16 weeks. It varies really though from person to person. I have heard women being able to hear it as early as 13/14 weeks. However my doctor told my when I went in for my 1st appt. at 12 weeks that if they couldn't hear the heartbeat not to freak out because average is around 16 weeks to actually be able to hear it. If they can't hear anything they will just do an ultrasound where you will be able to see the heart beating which is just as cool.
